ROY ZIMMERMAN: RiZe Up A Time to Laugh with Song that Says: Things Can Change In the current national political nightmare, we need to laugh. And we need to hope. Roy Zimmerman is a fabulous political satirist who has a signature blend of heart and hilarity that has never been more necessary. With a wonderful program, RiZe Up, Roy Zimmerman provides original songs that are a funny and forceful affirmation of Peace and Social Justice. Tom Lehrer congratulates Roy for reintroducing literacy to comedy songs and Sing Out Magazine says Roy is a man who is surprisingly optimistic. Roy’s songs have been heard on HBO and Showtime, and his videos have garnered tens of millions of views.He has recorded for Warner/Reprise Records. He's shared stages with Bill Maher, Ellen DeGeneres, Holly Near, Robin Williams, Arlo Guthrie, John Oliver, Kate Clinton and George Carlin, and tours the country constantly with his wife and co-writer Melanie Harby. video links: “Thoughts and Prayers” - https://www.facebook.com/39171898761/videos/10155446314448762/ “Defenders of Marriage” - https://www.facebook.com/39171898761/videos/10155525002063762/ “The Don” - https://www.facebook.com/39171898761/videos/10155428827098762/ "My Vote, My Voice, My Right” - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-X-uBIqeVM Roy co-writes these songs with his wife, Melanie Harby.

I think of it as entertaining the troops.” SundayMarch 24 1:00 pm First Unitarian Universalist Church of Stockton 2737 Pacific Avenue Cost: $20 or whatever you can afford!
